$2 can go a long way if you like ice cream, crepes and soda. That’s right my friends, Mothers Crepe at World Square released a $2 combo with all the above.
Mothers Crepe is a franchise started in Japan, offering sweet and savory crepes. In fact, did you know that they contain 50% dietary fibre commonly found in cereals? in their crepe mix? Interesting fact on their website.
I think I nearly screamed when I woke up at 5am in the morning when I checked my inbox. You got to be kidding, right? I immediately bought one voucher..but it’s max 5 per person.
Being a keen bean, I decided to go and check out what the fuss was about. When I arrived I think I found out that they are launching their soda drinks. They include pink grapefruit, lemonade, orange and cream soda.
The ice cream flavours are baileys, black sesame, chocolate obsession, Ferrero rocher, hokey pokey, black sesame, salted caramel, Hokkaido milk, Mars bar, green tea, Nutella, snickers, strawberry summer, tim tam and tiramisu.
I had a hard time deciding so I left it up to the guy at the counter who offered me the salted caramel. It took maybe 5 minutes? Less? I was Ina. Bit of a hurry so time was slow but there was only one person before me. I probably arrived at 6:10pm?
Watch the crepe makers use their tools over a circular heated plate. If you know me personally, I lived in France for a while so seeing this excites me! This is how hey do it there!
It can be tricky getting the thin layer because you can’t press onto the hot plate with the tool, but spread it evenly just above. It’s a technique and I still remember doing it for the first time… I was working at a crepe/churro/gelato place and no, I didn’t serve my crepe to the customer LOL. Ever since I’ve made tons of crepes for the French Speaking Society. I think I’ve improved.
There was a giant scoop of ice cream in my massive crepe. You can’t see it bulge in the middle but oh my gosh. This is definitely my #yolo meal of the day! The ice cream had pieces of caramel and oh so delicious! Thanks for the spoon too!
I don’t fancy melted ice cream but they cooled it down a bit before scooping it in. I noticed some jam twirled onto the crepe which made it pretty to eat.
Thank goodness I drank more than half of the pink grapefruit soda. It was really yum, not too sweet and not too sour. I quite like a bit of acidic taste because it makes it more ‘genuine’. I wonder what the percentage of fruit juice is in this? Normally it’s like 5%.
A nice dinner treat and the crepe was thick and chewy. Loved it. It was thinly layered but when you roll it up obviously it becomes fatter. Cute pink wrapping too!

Review Rating: =D =) =| =(
Product ($2 ice cream crepe and soda: =D
Would I go and buy a $2 ice cream crepe and soda combo from Mothers Crepe again? Done! This is totally worth more. How can you not buy 5? Cheaper than chips!
Would I donate the money I saved to my charity? It’s originally worth $6.50 and I would still pay it for an ice cream crepe and soda. If you think about it, it’s usually around $5 for one scoop of ice cream. You’ll get that in a crepe! Oh the joy! The drink is an added bonus.
Highlight: once that ice cream gets melted in the bottom of the crepe cone, it’s all runny so be careful not to spill it all over your top. It’s quite fun eating it strategically.
Suggestion of Improvement: I don’t know if the sodas would sell for $3 by itself. Maybe if it was $2, but I like the idea of being an add-on for $1. Anyway, the sodas were average but I’m keen to try the rest out.
